Rambus sues Hitachi
High-speed memory maker Rambus has filed a lawsuit against Hitachi for patent infringement.
The action filed in Federal District Court in Delaware charges Hitachi with unlawfully using Rambus’ intellectual property in the designs of Hitachi memory chips and microprocessors. Rambus is seeking an injunction, as well as punitive damages.
Hitachi may not be Rambus’ only target for legal action or requests for royalties. Sources say Rambus could go after any company that made SDRAM in the past 10 years, including Samsung, Micron Technologies, Infineon, IBM and Intel.
